Quote from: <k> on January 30, 2020, 11:26:11 AMThe design of the new 50p – the latest of 90 different designs for the coin since Decimal Day in 1971 – also seemed almost designed deliberately to avoid triggering family arguments over Brexit. Calls for the coin to be stamped with a "52" – in a nod to the percentage of the population that voted Leave – were rejected, as was a request for it to be adorned with a new Brexit-related heraldic symbol. Instead, the committee chose not mention Brexit at all, opting instead for a quotation from Thomas Jefferson's inaugural address as US president in 1801, and the leaving date – March 29 2019.
Quote from: Deeman on January 30, 2020, 11:44:20 AMIt is an abridgement of one of the principles from Thomas Jefferson's inaugural address on 4 Mar 1801 delivered in the Senate chamber of the Capitol. The full principle read:"Peace, prosperity, commerce and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliance with none."
Quote from: eurocoin on January 28, 2020, 09:53:32 AMIf anyone is still interested to go to the mint on Brexit day to strike the Brexit 50p and receive the special dated packaging for it, tours will become available again as the mint has this morning started to email people who have booked more than 4 tours telling them that a maximum 4 tours per person is allowed and that their other bookings will get cancelled. It will likely only be possible to book these tickets if you call them.There were people who had ordered spots on every consecutive tour for (almost) the entire day.
Quote from: Alan71 on February 01, 2020, 01:52:10 PMThe fluctuations are interesting. Just proves that some people have money to waste and others will shop around for the best deal. As much as I don't like the eBay fleecers, I can't blame them if buyers really are that stupid.
